• Posted one of the biggest games of his collegiate career while playing at University of Phoenix Stadium. During his junior season in 2011, Stanford faced Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl and Taylor ran for a then-career high 177 yards and two TDs in the matchup.

• The only player in Stanford history to rush for 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons (1,530 in 2012; 1,330 in 2011; 1,137 in 2010).
